The nose on this Honjozo made with spring water from the Minami Alps, is a solid collection of mineral, cherry, peach, grapefruit, green bamboo, and snowmelt aromas. This is not your everyday Honjozo, as it is an extremely suave and prideful brew that drinks very professionally! Professional? Yes! Most Honjozo sake are thin, linear, and uneventful made to be quaffed with urgency. Not this Seashore Pride. Smooth, layered, slippery, watery, soft with a dry finish. Think complexity and drink professionalism in sake making. This is a pure texture play that carries very interesting flavors such as peach, sourdough toast, dried apple rings, rice crackers with a heavy hand of umami and ocean brine licks that open up in a wine glass and come to their senses as the fluid warms. Smooth and suave, this is a must Honjozo for any folks looking for a cut-above category-defining brew. WORD: Professional WINE: Chewy Reds/Smooth Whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: Anything from the ocean and pub fare.
